"Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes, hoping for a respite in the French countryside, are instead caught up in a case that turns both bewildering and intensely personal After their recent adventures in Transylvania, Russell and Holmes look forward to spending time with Holmes' son, the famous artist Damian Adler, and his family. But when they arrive at Damian's house, they discover that the Adlers have fled from a mysterious threat. Holmes rushes after Damian while Russell, slowed down by a recent injury, stays behind to search the empty house. In Damian's studio, she discovers four crates packed with memorabilia related to Holmes' grand-uncle, the artist Horace Vernet. It's an odd mix of treasures and clutter, including a tarnished silver lamp with a rotating shade: an antique yet sophisticated form of zoetrope, fitted with strips of paper whose images dance with the lantern's spin. In the same crate is an old journal written in a nearly impenetrable code. Intrigued, Russell sets about deciphering the intricate cryptograph, slowly realizing that each entry is built around an image-the first of which is a child, bundled into a carriage by an abductor, watching her mother recede from view. Russell is troubled, then entranced, but each entry she decodes brings more questions. Who is the young woman who created this elaborate puzzle? What does she have to do with Damian, or the Vernets-or the threat hovering over the house? The secrets of the past appear to be reaching into the present. And it seems increasingly urgent that Russell figure out how the journal and lantern are related to Damian-and possibly to Sherlock Holmes himself. Could there be things about his own history that even the master detective does not perceive?"--… (mais)

One of the best volumes in this series. ( )
  drthubbie | Jun 17, 2024 |
This is full of Holmes history, and gives us very little of Mary. It's a fascinating story of heritage for Holmes, but I do wish it had included more action or dialogue from Mary. This is the most recently published in the series as of my reading it, so I am sad to be caught up. This is the only book in the series not narrated by Jenny Sterlin on audio, so I missed her voice.

This latest entry into the Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series offers readers a complex look into the backstory of Holmes and his family. Mysteries from his past are solved in this complicated novel that alternates amongst Mary, Holmes, and a coded diary. As Russell and Holmes seek to keep safe Damian (Holmes' son by Irene Adler), and his little family, they also uncover these mysteries that have lain buried for years.

For readers who enjoy a story that frequently jumps from one character's viewpoint to another, this may be an enjoyable read. I found it to be confusing and quite long-winded and detailed. Although I have read others in this series, I liked the earlier ones better.

I received this novel from the publisher and from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. ( )

A satisfying entry in the Russell/Holmes series, with several plot twists that caught me by surprise. As always, I recommend those new to the storyline start with the first two books, at least. ( )

The Lantern’s Dance - L.R.King
4 stars

RIP Jenny Sterlin. I’ve listened to her read every book in this series until this, the eighteenth adventure of Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes. I missed the audio performance, but I still enjoyed the story.

It is fortunate that after the previous 17 books I am practiced at suspending my disbelief. This book takes on the convoluted Holmes family history. It’s a family that includes his son, Damian, Damian’s mixed race daughter, Estelle, and Damian’s fiance. They are all very interesting characters sadly overlooked in the original Conan Doyle stories. Also overlooked by the founding author, the mother of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes. Their mother ?!? Yes. And an even more unlikely connection to the British Raj.

It was fun. I’m willing to believe every word. ( )
